The FedEx Cup playoffs are one step away from East Lake and the Tour Championship as the best on the PGA Tour head to Lake Forest, Illinois, for the BMW Championship.
Zach Johnson’s form the year he won the FedEx Cup was similar to this year.
I think he’s an excellent GPP play this week as he can play his normal game of fairways and greens, which should still provide him with plenty of opportunities at birdies, even on the longer holes.
One guy who will certainly be under the radar this week that I think is a solid play is Kevin Na.
Our rolling stats tool shows that over his last eight and 12 rounds played, he ranks 12th in strokes gained tee to green out of everybody in this week’s field.
As a former winner of the Western Amateur here, as well as a T-32 back in 2015, Hahn has good course history for his price point, but is entering the week with some poor recent form — T-75, MC, MC — but before that, he finished T-13 at Quail Hollow and T-10 in Canada.
I expect him to keep the momentum going this week to make a push to qualify for the Tour Championship last week.
